International Fellowships (for BEFORE graduation)
Undergraduate fellowships/scholarships specifically designed to support certain forms of study abroad include the Boren and the Gilman awards. Students interested in these awards should be aware that they are competitive and are also defined in such a way that understanding the awards, to whom they are likely to be granted, and what stipulations are in place for the awards is important before a student initiates an application. Guidance from the institutional representative (see below) is critical, from an early point, so interested students should be in direct contact as soon as possible after their initial interest is realized. Institutional endorsement is required, and there may be a limit on how many students can have the institutional endorsement so early planning is necessary for that and also so that the institutional representative can have sufficient time to review what is allowed and to provide feedback of a nature and in a time frame that is meaningful.
International Fellowships (for AFTER graduation)
Among the most competitive POSTGRADUATE fellowships/scholarships—Boren, Carnegie, Fulbright, Marshall, Mitchell, Rhodes, Rotary, and Watson--are those listed below. Please note, as you consider these, that:
- Although criteria vary, those listed here are indeed very selective.
- Guidance/help from the institutional representative pictured for each award is critical, from an early point, so interested students should be in direct contact with the appropriate one(s) as soon as their interest is realized. Abiding by deadlines is essential.
If a review of materials is allowed, the representative must have sufficient time to review what he or she can and to provide feedback in a time frame and of a nature that is meaningful.
- Institutional endorsement is required for virtually all of these, so students need to plan carefully with the idea in mind that they must work to obtain that endorsement and that the endorsing institution (Sewanee) may be limited in terms of the number of applications which can be endorsed.
